"With spectacular photography and attention to detail, this coffeetable book is one to be treasured by every cycling fan and bicycle conoscitore." -- VeloNews magazine"The passion and adoration for the company is well represented in this book, which is a must-have for any Campy fan." --BikeRadar.com"Unless you have a key to the Campy archives, you won't find the stories in this book and the vintage photos and illustrations anywhere else." --Roadbikerider.com "If you're looking for a Christmas gift for your favorite cycling history buff or bike owner, Campagnolo: 75 Years of Cycling Passion should go over rather well. Like any good large-format title, the book contains enough sidebars and anecdotes (and pure heft) to double as my techie brother's ideal coffee-table book." --PodiumCafe.com"Whether you are a member of the Campy cult, a user of their components or a fan of cycling history, this book is worth a read." --BikeWorldNews.com"The ultimate Campagnolo coffee table book." --TheWashingMachinePost.net"Full of incredible insights, admissions and explanations that have never been published before. Even the most dedicated Campy aficionado will find page after page of new information, much of it from the friends of Tullio who worked alongside him in the bicycle industry. An absolute necessity for anyone who craves information about Campagnolo." --USCyclingReport.com"Campagnolo is worth the price just for the early racing accounts and the reproductions of early racing posters, photographs and illustrations. Plus it's fun to remember the components that influenced so many cyclists." -- Cycling Utah

Top customer reviews
With great photography and illustrations, it written in such a way that even non cyclists could glean an understanding of why real bicycles and their parts cost what they do.
Unlike most coffee table books; this publication is one you can comfortably read it from cover to cover.
It would be nice to see a similar vesion on Campy's arch competitor Shimano.
But, there is some of the chapters that suddently just stop so you can't read the rest of the text.
But otherwise a great book.
